Texas Wages Campaign to Preserve Its Installations

first_imgTexas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is counting on a pool of $30 million approved by the Legislature earlier this year to prevent the loss of any of the state’s 15 installations in a future BRAC round as well as strengthen some by attracting new missions.The governor’s Texas Military Preparedness Commission meets next month to review grant applications from communities, which can collect up to $5 million each over the state’s 2016-17 fiscal biennium. Grants are capped at $2.5 million yearly.“We have so much to offer as a state in the context of national security that you can’t duplicate,” Commission Chairman Paul Paine told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “The installations in Texas all have very high national security value,” said Paine, a former commander at Naval Air Station (NAS) Fort Worth.The host communities for NAS Fort Worth, a joint reserve base that grew out of the closure of Carswell Air Force Base, hope to secure $4.5 million to improve access into the facility’s east gate.“We want to be prepared if there is” another BRAC round, said Fort Worth Councilman Jungus Jordan, president of the Texas Mayors of Military Communities, the main group that persuaded state lawmakers to allocate the grant money.“We don’t have Fort in front of our name by accident. We’re a military town. We will always be a military town,” Jordan said.Leaders in the state’s other defense communities also are positioning neighboring installations for a new round of base closures. “It’s not a matter of if another BRAC will happen; it is when,” said Bob Murdock, director of San Antonio’s Office of Military Affairs.Nevertheless, the state’s installations should fare well in a future round, according to defense analyst Loren Thompson, CEO at the nonprofit Lexington Institute.“Texas doesn’t have a lot to fear from base closures,” Thompson told the Star-Telegram. “Nobody is going to close a place like Fort Hood or the Army depot in Corpus Christi.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
